Cuban Fury

We already know that Chris O'Dowd ("The IT Crowd," Bridesmaids) and Nick Frost (Shaun of the Dead) will play rival dancers in Cuban Fury, a comedy from the same production company responsible for Hot Fuzz, "Spaced," and Attack the Block. The film follows a down-on-his-luck man who reignites his long-dormant passion for salsa dancing, crushed by a rival dancer (O'Dowd), due to a new love for his American boss played by Rashida Jones. In addition, Ian McShane is playing Frost's dancing instructor, and now we have a video blog from the set giving us a first look at the film. It's a fun look behind the scenes - enjoy.

Here's the video blog from the set of James Griffiths' Cuban Fury originally from Empire:

Cuban Fury is written by Jon Brown ("Misfits"), from an original idea by Nick Frost, and marks the feature film directorial debut of James Griffiths ("Up All Night" and "Free Agents"). Beneath Bruce Garrett’s (Nick Frost) shabby, overweight exterior, the passionate beating heart of a salsa king lays dormant.  Only one woman (Rashida Jones) can reignite his Latin fire. Spotlight hits, sweat drips, heels click. Chris O'Dowd and Ian McShane also star in the film which is slated to hit theaters in the United Kingdom and Ireland on March, but we're not sure when it's heading to theaters here in the United States yet, so stay tuned for more.

Why is O'Dowd suddenly getting swooned over all the time? He is just a regular dude. This looks funny. Possibly Farrelesque, at least in premise?
